Two very similar families are trying to get along living in a new neighborhood being built near a complex of prefab apartment blocks. At first the two couples like each other, but their fondness slowly grows into hatred. One of the reasons for this is their desire to be different from each other but the more they try to differ from their neighbors, the more they become identical both psychologically and physically. This is because they share an identical concept of being different. Their mutual irritation turns to full-on hatred and they make an attempt at mutual destruction. Their homes, which are set on fire, are not the only damages caused by these attempts: the wife of one of the families and the husband of the other also fall victims in the war. As they sit watching the smoking ruins of their homes, the surviving man and woman quickly discover that they were made for each other.
